The Cambridgeshire County Council-run project Hidden Stories is at Wisbech & Fenland Museum.

It highlights some of the less well-known tales of the Great War, including the 1912 Army manoeuvres, the First Eastern General Hospital, refugees, war pigeons, the Death Wire and ­occupied Lille.

Rebecca Morgan, learning services manager at Cambridgeshire County Council, said: “The ­exhibition aims to bring the history and experiences of the conflict up close to people across Cambridgeshire.

“This exhibition is just the first of a number local events and initiatives to commemorate the Great War centenary,” she said.
